   #1.  Gather Important Documents

Official certificates (birth, marriage), Property deeds, Vehicle License, the contact information of your
lawyer, doctor, insurance broker – all of these are important data you need to organize and keep in a
safe place.

Putting all these things together also makes compiling your estate plan easier as you will have all the
necessary information at your hand.

This will make it easier for your loved ones later.

#2. Execute a Last Will and Testament

A will is the most important document for your estate planning.

It details who you would like to give your property to, which important person or family member, after
your death.

When you write a will, you name a person you trust to handle the distribution of your property and
assets. Also, you can name a legal guardian for your minor children and their property.

#3. Power of Attorney

A strong power of attorney identifies the person you trust to be in charge of making decisions on your
behalf if you become incapacitated.

You may choose to designate separate powers of attorney: (1) for medical and healthcare decisions and
(2) another financial power of attorney for future estate planning and financial decisions. Especially
when you have small children this one is important.

The healthcare power of attorney is like a living will to make sure that your wishes regarding your
treatment are followed.

#4. Talk to Your Loved Ones 

Writing down everything on paper is a great step, to pre-plan and organize your eventual death.

Remember that talking to your loved ones about your desires is priceless.

They should be clear on what you want so that your wishes are accurately followed and they won’t have
to guess your intentions.

This will give them satisfaction throughout their life that they have delivered their responsibilities
according to your desires.
